Transform your home with your staircase

An area of the design of a home that is often forgotten about is the staircase.

However, in more recent years, homeowners and architectural designers are placing growing importance on bespoke, elegant staircases because, after all, they are the spine of the home and provide a focal point in most hallways or entrances. In this blog, we discuss 2021 staircase trends to help you decide which style you would like to implement in your own home! 



In our 2021 architectural blog, we discussed how industrial vibes would be an upcoming trend in 2021 and this is no different for staircase design. Industrial stair finishes such as raw steel have risen in popularity as they help to inject character and texture into your home and staircase design.

Adding glass into your staircase design or balustrades can help accentuate your space and staircase and they also ensure that there is no barrier to light glow between rooms and levels. However, glass panels do show up every smudge and fingerprint, therefore require more maintenance and cleaning than their timber or metal alternatives. If this is a factor that may be preventing you from including glass into your staircase, you may want to consider mixing styles and finishes to get the best of both worlds and combine classic and modern features in your design.

Also often referred to as a ‘staircase to heaven’, cantilevered glass steps and frameless balustrades are popular architectural features that provide the ‘wow' factor and allow light to flow easily through the hall and landing areas and provide a timeless modern feature to any home. 



Of course, if you are building a more traditional home or renovating a period property, simple or ornate spindles and newel posts will do a perfect job. Painting them can be a little tricky, so you can choose to do that before installing them, or keep them natural with a wood stain.
